When the traffic light changed, the cluster of cycle rickshaws started to run together. Bangladesh is one of the densely populated countries in the world. So it was easy to find the crowds on the streets in Dhaka. And the traffic jams were everywhere in Dhaka.
The cycle rickshaws were coursing during I stood at the crossing. They seemed to vie with one another and the situation reminded me of a starting post of a marathon. Perhaps the spearhead was a rabbit.
A pacemaker or pacesetter, sometimes informally called a rabbit, is a runner who leads a middle- or long-distance running event for the first section to ensure a fast time and avoid excessive tactical racing. Pacemakers are frequently employed by race organisers for world record attempts with specific instructions for lap times. Some athletes have essentially become professional pacemakers. A competitor who chooses the tactic of leading in order to win is called a front-runner rather than a pacemaker.
